Well it looks like Old Man Winter has finally arrived here today, and putting the kibosh on garden chores for the day. The forecasters are calling  for a 100% chance of snow straight through, til tomorrow.  And while the accumulation may not be huge, only five or six inches… the 32 degree temps are making for slick roads here already. 😦 so I walked early this morn and then up to the farm for some fresh eggs just as the fields were about covered in that blanket of white stuff.  I had to laugh watching farmer Matt coaxing this young calf back to the barn.

I was glad I pulled some root crops and kale yesterday… so today will be a perfect day for a long slow simmering stew and I’m glad to be home to make it and out of the hospital, finally.  The new diabetic diet has been both challenging and frustrating for me 😦 and I can’t help but wish we were back in June or July when veggies are plentiful to me and at my fingertips… sigh. 

But, snow or no snow, tonite the tree lighting along with caroling in the village will take place and then the bonfire down on the beach will follow, to warm us all up. And I suppose, the new fallen snow will make a pretty backdrop for the festivities… I’ll just leave the shoveling til tomorrow.

It’s a good thing we squirreled away some extra nuts for this hopefully, last Nor’easter of the season!  It’s just plain nasty out there.  Be safe everyone.

Garden planning….
img_0252Gardening in January? But I just love gardening. Love. Love. Love it! By the end of December I’m usually grateful for a break and because the holiday season takes up so much time with family, friends and business commitments it’s a good respite from weedin’. ( Oh yeah.. and because the ground is often frozen and covered with a couple of inches of that yucky white stuff.)

Yeah, I know it’s freezing out there. But I still planted my leek seeds.  Heck, I was suppose to be stirring 40 pounds of soaps, and had to put the the time to good use right? It’s the one thing that didn’t get into the garden last year, but it will for sure this year. 🙂 Just think, only a few more weeks left til I can play in the real dirt again! And there was still light past 4:30 last night!  Thinking Spring!
